It would appear that some of the big names in this area have been naughty regarding what they are selling as Brunello di Montalcino.
It should be from a monovitigno (one grape) Sangiovese but seems like they have been adding other grape varieties to increase the production .
Names like Castello Banfi,Frescobaldi, Piero Antinori and Giampiero Pazzaglia are also being investigated.
Castello Banfi has been sealed off by the Finance Police and looks like it will be a sad VINITALY for him this year.
Vinitaly is the world's largest wine fair which is taking place in Verona now---ends on Monday if anyone is in the area it is well worth a trip.
So now you see why I am not a big fan of Tuscany wines. A tad too commercial in some cases me thinks.
